Megan's Empire Book One

05 Family Matters

The Lesson

(first person, Megan)



What Happens?

Megan has finally obeyed her father's summons and entered his office to find him on the phone and a tea laid out with Earl Grey, her favorite since her days as a little girl with a crush on Jean-Luc Picard. He is on the phone and makes her wait while he discusses with his chief of staff why the attack can be turned to The Company's advantage.


After the call, JPK attempts to be friendly by sharing in Megan's tea but hate Earl Grey and get an assistant to bring him a health drink. Then he challenges Megan to prove she should stay in the family CEO chase. She ably proves her worth and is rewarded with the gift of either a newer, bigger, jet or a yacht that JPK had designed for him but has decided against as he will feel more secure while at sea with accommodations on one of The Company's aircraft carriers.


Megan chooses the yacht and makes the case that Angela (Swift) had been correct to request increased security personnel for Megan's protective team and her current jet, a Dreamliner, is adequate.
